The short nweek problem would be easy enough to fix - just lengthen the

Hrm, there's three checkpoints per nweek, right? If they each last four
ndays, and we have a two-day freeze at the end of the nweek for voting
(which other Nomics might be happy about - I know Agora has a weekly ballot,
for instance, and if we can get the Serious Nomic to adopt our calendar it's
definitely universal), then a new nweek begins every fourteen days. This
would also sync it up with the outsiders' week, so that we could have voting
happen every other weekend.
